Follow these steps::

Scan your computer with an antivirus
Apply De-fragmentation on your system
Delete all temporary files
Run disc clean up
Fix registry errors.

Also Services.msc:

Click Start, type services.msc in the Search box. Press ENTER. Right click and stop each service which is not necessary for you.

You most likely have a misbehaving program that is reluctant to shut down. If you are part of a domain, your pc may be trying to write to the network before shutting down and is having problems doing so.
